The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (http://www.jvwresearch.org/) is an online, open access academic journal that engages a wide spectrum of scholarship. We welcome contributions from the many disciplines and approaches that intersect with virtual worlds' research.
Motivation and Scope
The Assembled issue is a place for various papers, on the topic of the journal - that are being collected during the year and published usually once a year (in 2016 we will experiment with two assembled issues.)
Authors who would like to submit directly to the ‘Assembled’ issue should do so by adding the words “submitted for Assembled” in the “Comments for Editor” on the 1st step of the submitting process.

We have reviewed 25 submissions in this batch for the Assembled issue to be published in 2016Q1. Of them:
-- 5 “Accepted with revisions” papers -- they will now go for further review.
-- 10 “Ask for revisions” papers -- the authors can submit a new version which will be considered for the next issue (~2016Q3).
-- 10 “declined” papers -- mostly due to lack of impact, triviality, unneeded complexity, or disconnect with the state of the art.
